As I was shopping at my local B & N, the Local Clerk allowed as they had just received a message from Criterion that they were no longer making Dual-format editions, as their survey showed that people either wanted DVD or Blu-ray.
The Clerk continued that the price would be lowered by about ten dollars for the DVD, but not for the Blu-ray. The Blu-ray price would remain the same.

I called customer service and they're sending a replacement expedited.

Fantastic Mr. Fox is in similar packaging and didn't have any issues. This must have just gotten crushed on the truck.

That makes sense. The price of the dual-format edition BDs never went up in price as it is.

Picked up Breaking the Waves, Marketa Lazarova, and The Great Beauty... glorious stuff.

Biding my time to go back for Scanners,, Investigations of a Citizen Above Suspicion, and The Uninvited.

This weekend I picked up the following:

Yojimbo/Sanjuro
Three Outlaw Samurai
Cronos
In the Mood for Love

I'll be back on Friday to pick up Scanners, and maybe some others.

Re: B&N 50% off Criterion blu-ray sale now live from June 30 through July 28

Is there a secret to getting the 15% off e-mail coupons without being a member?
I signed up for the e-mail list, but so far I've gotten no e-mails from B&N at all.
Thanks for any advice/help!

Poster asked a polite question; a polite answer is probably appropriate.

To expand on the above, nobody seems to know why some e-mail signups are successful in getting on the coupon distribution list and others are not. Coupons are coming tonight so if you don't see something in the AM, the attempt to sign up was not successful.

My advice - sign up multiple times with multiple e-mail adresses to increase one's chances.

When did you sign up? The coupons for this weekend won't come out until midnight tonight.

If you've been a member for a while, sometimes they just screw up and don't send 'em. You can call CS, but there's no guarantee they'll fix it. Your best bet is to come on here tomorrow and see if anyone has an extra. There usually quite abundant.

Then the poster should have read the entire thread. It's been discussed several times.

In regards to why some people may or may not get the emails, I've noticed all of my B&N emails go straight to spam. Not sure why since their email address is on my contact list. But that's a possible place to look if you don't see any in your inbox.

I'm glad you are around policing the board and deciding what people should or should not be asking (and what they should be reading). Thank you.

Simmer down little one. Yes, you figured me out, I'm known for policing the boards, just like you.

FYI - I did get an email (in my spam box of course) with a 15% off coupon, good through Sunday. Scanners here I come.

Got my 15% off coupon too, but I want Insomnia which gets released on Tuesday. And the coupon is good through Sunday. Hrmmm, I guess somebody could put it out early. Here is hoping since there are a couple of B&N stores near my work.

Just ask politely and I'm sure someone will PM you a few. They're very giving.

I got a 20% off one item coupon. Is that 15% off coupon, mentioned here, for the whole order or just one thing?

One item. Some got it for 20% and some got it for 15%.

hrmm. Well based off that that 8 bucks off the purchase of $40 coupon is more valuable to me than this one. Unless there's a set I don't have or know of that I would want. Zatoichi, I already have. Damn that was such a good buy. Best deal ever for me I think.

Could you send me some awesome PMs too, if you can? I feel like I'm forgetting a coupon that'd I'd want.

I'd be very grateful for a couple of coupons that non-members of B&N can use.

I received 1 coupon for 1 of my email accounts, but I would like 1 more if possible. Thanks.
